Mission: Building lasting relationships and delivering value through exceptional technology services.
I have been working at CalTech (Texas) full-time (Less than a year)
This is the best company I've ever worked for. Everyone here is welcoming, fair, and eager to help each other succeed. Even the customers are wonderful people to work with (and I've understood why)! A strong focus is placed on building solid relationships with customers, and a lot of respect is created from just that idea alone. There are also clear paths to progress your career within CalTech. Most people started as a Tier 1 desktop support tech, so they are able to relate to the work involved no matter what role they currently perform. Powerful ideas reside at CalTech's core that will steadily push it forward to succeed. This is the kind of company I would want to create if given the chance, and I aim to continue to be a part of it's future for years to come.
The interview process is rigorous, but it is worth it.
Advice to Management
Never let go of the core values you've already established.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CalTech (Texas) in February 2013.
While in graduate school, I studied I/O Psychology and part of our program was geared towards the hiring process. As a student, I felt like I would be able to offer some recommendations, based on what I was learning in the grad program. CalTech knocked the interview process out of the park. A large majority of the best practices we learned in school were the very same things CalTech was doing. Needless to say, I was impressed!
